Mum has Refused to Wash Herself
Mum is in her 80s and her and her bed smells really bad: my father or I makes sure the linen is changed regularly and her clothes cleaned; but she refuses to wash of receive help to wash herself. My father told me last month she has not washed for months: I was not surprised.
I feel that I will have to step in and arrange for the district nurse to come to her home and wash her. I have discussed this with dad and found that he has avoided doing this because Mum is very stubborn and would give the nurse a very hard time and refuse to be washed. I have also mentioned to dad that she needs to be washed for her hygiene and health and he agrees. I have also said that same thing to mum.
Any more suggestions would be appreciated,
